    This tiny example of the standard German Army (Heer) dagger measures 8" long while in the scabbard and is wonderfully detailed. The blade is unmarked and unsharpened chrome plated steel. As on the full sized versions, the Trolon segmented grip is a bright lemon color with no cracks or chips. It is really amazing to see the detail of the crossguard, eagle, wreath and swastika!

    The silver plating on the scabbard and fittings, as well as the crossguard and pommel, is still in excellent condition with a nice patination and slight wear to the lacquer. Both of the scabbard bands are present, but there apparently were never any rings with the model seen here. The upper band is completely drilled through, but the bottom only partially drilled. In any case, I have seen like examples online without the carrying rings.

    One other unique feature of this interesting piece is the leather blade buffer is Luftwaffe blue! They must have used this as a substitute! "Who would notice", right? I have personally tested it out however and have found it enjoyable for opening just about any envelopes except bills!
